MEMENTO

Better to feel

(Than be)

Blood rushes thru veins
And the heart beats,

Only one-day to complete it’s duty

While eventually earth and gods shall all come crashing down

And kingdoms & civilizations fade.

And so please, I ask you only this;

That when I leave to let me take these
Few things with me;

The moon, the sun and the stars,

And the small traces of light which
Once reflected in your eyes

That I can no longer see
